HIS 303 Week 5 DQ 1 Conservative Constitutionalism

Short description

Historians sometimes speak of the “Reagan Revolution” that occurred after Ronald Reagan became president in 1981. This revolution represented a conservative backlash against the liberalism of the first half of the twentieth century, and arguably continues to set the tone of political debate in the country today. Identify the key ideological components of the conservative constitutionalism associated with the Reagan Era and the Rehnquist Court. In practice, how did conservative constitutionalism affect American politics and the American government? Has the influence of conservative constitutionalism increased or declined in the decades since Reagan left office?
